Live show night out

Great night out at the Queen tribute act Flash Harry, brilliant show, fantastic venue and very good bar facilities, if just a little expensive for my liking.

While the Waterfront itself is a good venue for concerts etc the food unfortunately is not up to the same standard. I attended a 2 day conference recently. The food was poor and there was very little flexibility for those of us who like plain food. I won't be revisiting in a hurry.

Super super show the nearest thing you will get to a London west end show in Belfast. Music arrangement with mix of young and trained voices is exceptional. This is the 3rd year we have gone and Christmas for me starts with this show.

Just saw Passenger play in the Waterfront, good venue. Did not know there was seating, will get seating next time I visit. Left a few minutes before the show finished to get a taxi, as apparently it is difficult to get a taxi after with the crowds. Drinks are very VERY expensive. £9 for one beer and one wine... Security... More

I have been to a few concerts at the waterfront and have always found service at both downstairs and upstairs bars to be very slow. I went to watch Passenger last night and faced a long wait at the bar to buy drinks as staff were very slow, some younger staff were unable to pour pints and all eight members... More

Very nice walk from the town to the marina, passed all of the boats. Pleasant to sit on the benches and watch the world go by.

I have been to the Waterfront Hall in Belfast more times than I can remember and my impression has always been the same. This is an amazing concert venue and with regards to the view there is not a bad seat in the house However if you go to a Concert which relies on amplification then you will be sorely... More

We went to see the excellent Romesh Ranganathan and thoroughly enjoyed the show. Our complaint, which is the same every time we go to this venue is to do with the organisation or lack of it, in the small downstairs bar areas. The service is dreadfully slow, while some staff are just walking around telling the lengthy queue that there... More

Modern architecture, unfortunately a new modern building has been build aside, by which the view on that modern theatre is somewhat narrowed.
